    Hiya, you may of seen my post about doing work in Schools.

    After talking to a well established company that we have known for years, he has suggested that i get myself a small server, add to it SBS 2003 and learn it. Get people to break and try and fix the solution.

    Now thats well and good, but I need to know how to use it in the first place, so I need some reading material.

    What in your oppinion is the best book to learn SBS 2003 ?

    Also, to know SBS 2003, is it a must that I know other things so it all comes together, or is it possible to Learn SBS on its own

    Please note i do have a basic knowledge of software and operating systems, so i am not a total noob

    Thx for any help

    Paul

    I've never known any schools that use SBS, mainly due to the limitations of it. I would say possibily learn the individual technologies in SBS first, eg Windows Server, Exchange, ISA and Sharepoint, as that would give you a better and deeper understanding of the technologies.

    As for learning about it, get yourself a server and a Technet subscription and the CBT for it and a book - maybe the one for the exam. Plus also see here and here.

    Ok, it would seem that SBS is not what schools are using as psoted earlier.

    I have a fairly decent pc at home which I can easily convert to a server.

    Do you think putting Windows Server 2003 on it and learning its capabilities is a good idea ?
    What book would you recommend for me to learn this software

    Many thx

    These set of books are good. However you may want to start off with something like this to get the basics.

    There are also a variety of CBT's to choose from :)

    Yeah, the way to go :)
